call user's functions and send parameters

Post by Christopher » April 15th, 2011, 7:45 am

I’m using a Keithley 3706 leading via GPIB bus by software written with C++ language.
I’m using the KPCI-488LP/LPA diagnostic tool software to test scripts calling from PC.
I have a script with some functions using parameters.
function order_choice(sensor_number, a, b, c, d)

if ((c == 0) and (d == 0)) then order_1(sensor_number, a, b)
if ((c ~= 0) and (d == 0)) then order_2(sensor_number, a, b, c)
if (d ~= 0) then ordre_3(sensor_number, a, b, c, d)


My functions run correctly when I use this function in the same script file:
function test ()
order_choice (1, 101.1890, 0.3881,0 ,0 )
order_choice (1, 101.4165, 0.3725, (2.18*10^(-4)), 0)
order_choice (1, 101.3647, 0.3787, (1.39*10^(-5)), (1.95*10^(-6)))


My goal is to delete this last function ( test() ) and call directly the function order_choice(v,w,x,y,z) from KPCI-488LP/LPA diagnostic tool software.
Can I call the function order_choice with parameters directly from KPCI-488L diag tool software :?:

thank you for your help

Hello Christopher,

Almost any function present in your script can be called from external software and of course you can call functions that require parameters.

This is the best way to integrate your 3706 with software like Labview.

What you have to remember is to run first the script that contain the function you are calling.

Best Regards
